Has the gamey nose of goat emmentaler cheese soaked in cherries. Young and ageable. Purchase to cellar if you enjoy the name. Classically oaked California Cab.

Tasted at the new Geyserville tasting room. What a beautiful setting. The new silver oaks are really terrific wines. I particularly liked this 2014 Alexander valley. It was so true to its Cabernet roots and should glide effortlessly in the cellar for many many years

What is better with a 1.75” medium rare steak and an Idaho baked potato? A super dry, dense, heavily oaked Napa cab! I was glad I decanted the wine before we went to a dance recital of our granddaughter. Upon our return 2.5 hours later, the coarse tannins had been beaten into submission and opened up into pleasant flavors of cigar box, cedar and old spice and fully integrated with dark, dry blackberry, pie cherry and mulberry. It was a feast!

We had the 2014 Vintage on 3/13/21. More fruit forward than the Napa 2014. Blueberry, plum and oak. Full bodied.
